The Omnitron iConverter 19-Module Chassis

iConverter 19 Module Managed ChassisThe iConverter 19-Module Chassis is designed for Enterprise Local Area Network (LAN) and Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) applications where fault tolerance and a high-density rack footprint are essential. The 2U (3.5 inch) high iConverter 19-Module Chassis supports up to three power supplies for redundancy, and can be mounted in a 19-inch or 23-inch rack.

The 19-Module Chassis features up to three hot-swappable, redundant power supplies. Universal AC, 24VDC and 48VDC power supplies can be used in any combination. The power supplies operate in load-sharing mode to reduce the burden on each power supply to extend the lifetime and fault tolerance.

Power is provided to the nineteen iConverter modules installed in the chassis via the chassis backplane. When used with an iConverter management module, the management capabilities include the ability to monitor the voltage, current and temperature of each power supply. Any out-of-range violation can trigger an SNMP trap to allow quick corrective maintenance.

In addition to handling the power and management data for each iConverter module, the 19-Module Chassis backplane allows sharing of Ethernet data between the individual modules. iConverter modules that are installed in adjacent slots and equipped with Ethernet backplane ports have the ability to connect to each other via the chassis’ Ethernet backplane and facilitate a variety of flexible management options including unmanaged, out-of-band managed, in-band managed and multi-port configurations.

The high reliability of the redundant power system combined with its AC and DC power options and its ability to hold nineteen modules in a 2U height make the iConverter 19-Module Chassis the ideal choice in the core of an enterprise, in a Central Office (CO) or for Point of Presence (POP) applications where reliability and space are critical.

The iConverter 19-Module Chassis supports the entire family of iConverter fibre media converters. All iConverter modules are hot swappable and support multiple mounting options.

  • Management is available with the addition of a management module to the chassis
  • SNMP management via NetOutlook® provides real-time port and module status information, remote parameter configuration and trap notification
  • Commercial (0 to +50° C), wide (-40 to +60° C) and extended (-40 to +75° C) temperature ranges
  • Lifetime Warranty and free 24/7 Technical Support


Management provides remote configuration, monitoring and trap notification. Management of the chassis and modules is accomplished by installing an iConverter Management Module (NMM2) or Network Interface Device (NID) in the same chassis.

The Management Module can be accessed via SNMP, Telnet and serial port. The chassis and modules can be managed with Omnitron’s intuitive, graphic-oriented NetOutlook SNMP Management Software or third party SNMP management software. Management via the Telnet and the serial interfaces have an easy-to-use, menu-driven interface.

Fixed parameters that can be monitored on the 19-Module Chassis include the chassis type and model, manufacturing information, along with hardware and software revisions and serial numbers of the power supplies.

In addition, the power supply modules can generate SNMP traps for out of voltage or chassis temperature range violations. All of these events can selectively enabled or disabled to generate SNMP traps.
